Wheels for the World - Team Building Activity
Imagine a team building event that is both exciting for your group and gives back to underprivileged kids. With the Wheels for the World team building program, your team can experience a fast-paced and engaging team event while making an immediate and meaningful impact on the lives of children in your area.
Do you recall your first bicycle? Remember the fun, the adventure, the freedom? Wheels for the World offers your team the chance to pass those feelings on to a child by building and donating bikes for kids.
Anyone can assemble a bike (well, almost anyone) if they receive all of the parts, a few tools, and the instructions. But, in Wheels for the World, teams must earn the parts by participating in fun team building challenges. Each activity is funnier than the last in this energy-filled session.
During this team building activity, teams work to earn the front tire, seat, handle bars, and pedals, they are simultaneously building teamwork, strengthening relationships and developing trust. (By the way, a cycling professional will be on hand to make sure the bikes are assembled properly.)
The biggest surprise of the day is yet to come. Once the bikes are assembled, you will have the opportunity to decorate them with a colorful, personalized card and lots of balloons, beads and stickers. Teams perform a fun skit or commercial about their bike at the end and everyone thinks this is the grand finale.
We line up the bikes in the front of the room so that your team can admire their handiwork. Then, participants close their eyes and are told to imagine the looks on the children’s faces when they receive their new bikes.
But what if they didn’t have to imagine?
Shhhhh, don’t say anything, but we will make arrangements to bring the children to your team building program where your staff will present the bikes directly to kids.
Kids are jumping for joy… adults get a little misty-eyed (that’s right, even the big strong guys)!
In Wheels for the World, your team will share a heart-felt bonding experience and know that they’ve done something truly impactful for the community.
